    haha thanks! I will say the handpainted one with the eyes was all kinds of awesome. I love weird colors so maybe the green & pink have just been too quiet for me.

    I'm just messing with you. Everyone has their own taste. No offense taken here, really! It's all good.

    I'm not at liberty to say. I have one sitting at home though! I believe an announcement will be made soon, I don't know.

    Here's hoping it'll be easier to score than the Pink.

    Wha? A Gargamel toy, easy to score? Dude, I'm lucky I designed him. Otherwise I don't know if I'd be into the chase!

    So you are the one who got 'Hippie Killer'! Saw it at the Schmancy show. Damn, I wanted that one!

    Cograts & nice collection. Martin does some amazing work.

    I wish! Last year I was stashing cash for a big ticket item and so wasn't able to buy much else.

    The painting that got me hooked on Martin was this one from about four years ago:
    [​IMG]
    At the time I called the gallery about his work but they were fairly snippy with me. Since (as is the case more often then not) I didn't have a lot of cash I figured fuck 'em, I'm not gonna go crazy trying to scrape anything together if they're gonna look down their noses at me. Since then I've followed his work, watched his style evolve in a wonderful way and I'm happy to see him at other galleries....

    Yeah well, that was then, this is now. No more bots, sorry. Burnt out on them. I was made for making monsters, people. I can't ignore my calling!

    Yup, i'd have to agree, the man was made for making monsters; as cool as the robots were, the monsters blow them out to the water (or off the planet... or something like that).

    No complaints here, Martin! I love robots AND monsters (and space people!).

    Thanks guys for all of your nice comments!


    Uub, you have a great painting. I also like martin's older robot paintings; it was a

    great style and those pieces are classic. It's interesting to see the transition

    between the robots and monsters.


    Would love to see a 'sneak' of the new ojo!

    Thanks for posting this @treblekicker. When my ex had cancer the first time, someone started a "Meal Train" but I don't think there was just a cash donation option. Man, cash would have been so much better than some of the "meals" people made. Other people's idea of food can be so weird.

    Just in case you missed it, you can still just send him some $$$. There's a donation option on the page. That's what I did. But it would be nice to do something more personal
